% instead of 39.6% obama is asking for. that idea, horrifying the left. it does not poll very well. it actually doesn't do much from a budget tear standpoint but i think people say it's powerfully symbolic for the republicans to get that concession sen if this is something that the white house is willing to explore does this not suggest they're very concerned about the leverage of the republicans with the debt ceiling and pressure to give in in a real way here? >> i think there's desire on the part of the president to increase social security. while the public would like to both strengthen the two programs and never change them, that's not really possible. so, i think if the white house was able to make some reforms that they could agree to, that they think will actually help the long-term sustainability of the programs, and will also help get republicans on board to vote for something that not only increases taxes on the wealthy and also takes the debt ceiling debate off the table i think that they're going to look for ways to do that. if the president is seen in his legacy as somebod

steal a little from krystal, it appears it's obama and boehner one on one. there's no i in team but there's one in win, which is why the fiscal slope negotiations are getting serious. we haven't heard yet from the president but have heard from speaker boehner. >> this isn't a progress report, because there's no progress to report. the white house has wasted another week. it's time for the president, if he's serious, to come back to us with a counteroffer. >> to further explain the nature here, we welcome you to movie metaphor club. today we clinic the fiscal slope talks to a seen from the sublime 1994 film "pulp fiction." in this diner theme we have samuel jackson's jewels in a tense tango by two small timers. >> nobody is going to hurt anybody. we're going to be like three little fonzis here. what's he like, yolanda? >> cool. >> what? >> cool. >> correct. thats what we're going to be. we're going to be cool. >> that's great. >> this is the financial whatever you want to call it in a nut shell. obama is jewels, boehner is pumpkin and the tea party is yolanda. they're locked in a ten

would be? bahama ca obama care, medicare, medicaid? >> from the briefing it pertains to medicare and medicaid. the one specific thing we got is part of the health savings in the $600 billion mark would come from raising the medicare entry age from 65 to 67. something that the house republicans have talked about before. that is very much a big part of that 600 billion in health savings. >> thanks, luke russert, on the hill for breaking it down. let's go back to michael crowley. steve wants to get wonky with you. >> i haven't looked closely at this. what jumps out is the difference between obama saying he wants 1.6 trillion revenue and republicans say 800 billion in revenue. as luke said, not giving in on the issue of raising tax rates. they hold out this promise of tax reforms with loopholes and deductions. i don't know exactly how they arrive at that. it strikes me when you think back to 2010 when obama went along with extending the bush tax cuts for two more years. he was adamant back then, this is it and i'm doing it for two more years and i'm going to run for re-election and make

compromise actually is on what that number is. now, there are two numbers that the obama side, the democrats want to change. there are two top rates. the 33 and the 35. under the obama plan, the 33 would go to 36, the 35 would go to 39.6. you know, if you're trying to negotiate a compromise, you can start to play with each one of those numbers and try to find something. the huge problem for the republicans on doing that is they're opposed to any kind of tax increase on principle. so it's very hard for them to go into the negotiations that way and say, well, we could live with 37. well, if you do that, you have violated everything you've said about what you stand for prior to that. min i mean, the easier way for boehner to handle this is to allow if not secretly encourage a vote to occur in the house on the senate bill. if boehner were to allow a couple of dozen of his people it to go sign the discharge petition so that that comes to a vote and it comes to a vote without boehner having his fingerprints on it, allowing some republicans to go over there and just vote for that, that's

obama and john boehner do the gangnam style dance and then we'll be in a better place. >> you know, i want to say quickly, that reminds me of al simpson doing that, say what you will about him. he has a showman's flare. when he retired from the senate in 1996, he came up to the kennedy school in cambridge and he was working there with robert reich and got together and pitched a public television show. it's alan simpson's 6'7", robert reich, 4'10" and called it the long and the short of it. >> i know you're not making it up. >> comedy and politics, road trips. i watched it! senior in high school. i even attended a taping. >> last question. will you boldly go on the record right now and right here to support a common sense solution. >> everyone has a different deaf situation of common sense. that's too easy. >> neil irwin, thank you for joining us. >>> ahead, washington may be stuck in the neutral but the rest of the country is moving forward. new numbers of pot and gay marriage will have you talking. it's in the spin cycle as we roll on for wednesday, december 5th. questions? anyone ha

president obama gives his first post-election interview. who got the scoop? here's a hint. it wasn't us. i blame toure. >> i'm steve kornacki, more than aa million americans spanning all ages and races share one common belief. god is alive and well, but this isn't your parents' religious renaissance. >> na non-believer's prayers have been answered. doug dynasty invited me on a hunt, and i'm taking you all, too, today on "the cycle." >>> for those of you counting, it's just 27 days, eight hours and 59 minutes until the ball falls in times square. what did you think i was talking about? all those spending cuts and tax hikes that go into effect if washington doesn't make a deal. that means four more weeks of spinning our wheel of misfortune. where will it land today? follies. that's the perfect term. both sides miles apart. wall street remains optimistic a deal will be reached by january 1st. perhaps in a nod to investors, the president gave his first post-election interview today to none other than bloomberg tv. >> i think that we have the potential of getting a deal done, but i
